An ever-increasing number of Chinese students are returning home after studies abroad, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security reported on March 19.

A total of 497,400 overseas Chinese students have returned to China between 1978 and 2009, of which, more than 100,000 Chinese students returned in 2009, up 56 percent from the previous year, according to the ministry.

So far, China has built more than 150 pioneer parks to accommodate 8,000 businesses and more than 20,000 returning overseas students.

Yin Weimin, deputy director of the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee, minister of the Human Resources and Social Security, and president of the inter-ministerial meeting, stated that the Chinese government will establish a sound policy system, launch key projects and create a satisfying environment for returning students by adhering to the policy of "supporting overseas students, encouraging their return and guaranteeing them the freedom of leaving or returning to China."

The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security will launch many projects related to returning overseas students. The ministry will develop a proposal to provide support for returning overseas students, and perfect relevant policies relating to the exit, entry, residing and settling down of returning students. The ministry will also facilitate the aims of the "1,000 Talents Program" launched by the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee and pay attention to the implementation of relevant projects specially designed to attract overseas students.

And they will also promulgate a proposal on setting up an overseas students-oriented service system that actively provides information and other services to returning students. The ministry will aid returning students who intend to work and start businesses in China by creating better living and working environments.
